Ideas To Inspire

Beautiful Little Box!

Hello Crafters

This weekend I decided to work on a project I had seen last year and it had been on my mind for a long time. I couldn’t make it as I could not get hold of the die I needed as it is now discontinued but low and behold whilst searching Craft Clearance, the die was there and at a very reasonable price, so I just had to pounce. The die was Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame Die

I had seen this on Amazing Paper Grace and had been itching to try it and you can see for yourself how beautiful it is. It turned out really well and was surprisingly easy to do. Here is the link for all the information to make this box.

It really was a sheer pleasure to make, just using ribbons, a punch, white card and stamp and emboss. Here’s a close up of the weave

Such a delight to craft and this will make someone a wonderful present too!

Experimental Sunday 3

Hello Again Crafters

Well this was my last experiment (Sigh!), I never want to stop once I start!

I have been looking for ideas for different types of boxes, as I have had a bit of a ‘box’ run recently, so I spent a while looking and getting some ideas.

I didn’t want to copy so I created my own from scratch, and to be fair, I couldn’t even begin to post all the steps here, but I would like your opinion on the end result.

Gift Box


Personally, I am in two minds, can’t decide if I like it or not, but it will become a gift for someone at Christmas. It certainly is huge inside, so I will be buying little bits and pieces to fill it up!

So once again, I ask for your opinion, I did get all the things rattling around in my head out, so hopefully next week, I can craft with free spirit!

Oh and a wonderful piece of news…..I finally finished the day time wedding invitations for my son and his fiancee…..YIPPEE!!!! 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I will see you soon!
